Maps and gazetteers are essential for family historians. Knowing where our German families came from and locating that place in a gazetteer and on a map, is extremely important as we search for records that reference them. 

Importantly it will place them in the community, show the names of surrounding villages, and provide information on the local terrain. 

In Germany we must know the place to progress our research as records are held locally rather than centrally, as they are in many other countries.

This handy guide gives readers plenty of links to maps and gazetteers that can be found online, as well as information on how to use them. A must for everyone researching their German roots.

    Eric and Rosemary Kopittke have produced many helpful publications to assist those of us researching German ancestors. (My high school German is very rusty after sixty years.) The advantage of this guide in eBook form means one can click the hyperlinks and reach the many maps and gazetteers more easily and the authors have provided very helpful notes on searching them. They also provide lists of typical abbreviations one would find in the various documents. I'm now wishing I'd bought my other Handy Guides in eBook form too.
